Track Name: Tinfoil hat
drakes and hens
swim in the lake
throwing them wonder bread
in the heat of the day
found I had less to say
found what I couldn’t be
can barely finish a sentence
But I feel complete

sometimes when I feel stupid
I put on my tinfoil hat
Masquerading as a man

don’t try too hard
don’t push too far
go big or go home
don’t rebuild when you can reload
she loves me still
she’s waiting still
I made my choice maybe I always will

sometimes when I feel stupid
I put on my tinfoil hat
Masquerading as a man

If it isn’t pretty
We don’t want it
We don’t say much about it

Sometimes when I look stupid
I put on my tinfoil hat
Track Name: Sticky subject
afraid of the light switch
trip the alarm
but where can you go
when you gamble the farm
the Padre, the Padre
building his missions
no one ever said he was over ambitious
I look suspicious with my hands
up in the air yelling Saturday Saturday
I hope you get the joke
I like to dive right in
Geronimo

It’s a sticky subject
It doesn’t get much easier than this
Why not admit I screwed up
baby love baby love

break in your office
sleep on the floor
figuring they might let me work the door
hazardous chemicals
are my cup of tea
letting people down is something of a specialty

we don’t do well in big moments
we don’t really like wearing pants
stay up late planning our missions
and whining about the past
Track Name: 2010
i had a vision a vision from heaven
day one of the future gonna start off slow
we'll board a train to the ocean
and wait for the crescendo

did you get the message that sharing is caring
red hands speak for themselves
and your imitation of the television
when you whine and stomp and yell...
mellow, i'm mellow

you don't need another friend
who will change your mind again
you're living proof
breathe hard, i'm right behind you

and you don't remember walking through it
but we're both pretty certain we're talking through it
and love is a big one, so let's change the subject
we are the future, today is no different

chorus

if there was a time for you to stand up
for what's worth defending
life likes to change what we intend
when your world is ending
i remember all the things i saw and did
in the year 2010
Track Name: Brn brk
i need a brain break
i need a brain break
Track Name: You're welcome
